YSL Nude Protest (30) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single stroke, which delivered even color that didn't emphasize my natural lip texture.
The lipstick felt smooth, velvety, and lightweight with a thinner consistency that didn't cling but didn't slide around at all during wear. It stayed on nicely for over seven hours, left a moderate stain behind, and felt neither drying nor hydrating while worn.
